Astrocytic dye coupling in rat hippocampus: topography, developmental onset, and modulation by protein kinase C.


Previous studies have shown that astrocytes constitute a functional syncytium whereas the cytoplasmata of individual cells are connected via gap junctions. Many studies have used cultured astrocytes and have examined electrical coupling with the help of double electrode techniques. Another approach has been the immunohistochemical detection of gap junction… (More)
